Military denies Chibok girls pregnancy rumours

12 October 2015, 10:12

Abuja - The Military has restated its commitment towards the rescue of the Chibok schoolgirls and other victims the Boko Haram sect is holding captive.

Acting Director of Defence Information, Colonel Rabe Abubakar, made the disclosure in responding to various reports on the plight of Chibok Girls and other captives in the terrorists’ dens.

“The Nigerian military and other security agencies are working round the clock to secure the release of not only the Chibok girls but other innocent citizens who are held hostage by the terrorists,” he said.

“The military, being a component of the society, is equally worried and is doing everything possible to address the current security challenges. The search for abducted Chibok school girls and the rescue of other Nigerian in hostage has never relapse as could be attested to in recent times where hundreds of women and children were rescued by the military through its coordinated operations,” Abubakar said.

The Defence Headquarters spokesman added that the military would continue to sustain the operation until the entire North East was cleared of all terrorists and miscreants, who kidnapped the schoolgirls in Aril last year.

He denied recent media report on an escapee who alleged pregnancy of most Chibok girls.

Abubakar urged the media to always verify their information before going to the press.

“The DHQ is not unmindful of the media’s good intention in this regards however, we wish to advise reporters and any other stakeholders to be good partners in ensuring their safe rescue and successful termination of terrorists campaign,” he said. – CAJ News
